Nail Art │ Ugly Sweater Holiday Manicure


Hello, sweeties! Happy Friday!

I arrived yesterday to my parent's home in Argentina after 24 hours travel. I didn't have time to share on Social media because I was too busy living the moment. I haven't been to my home country in two years and the reunion with my parents, my brother and nephews and my sister in law was full of emotion and we had so much to talk about!!

We have a lot of plans for this weekend and for the upcoming holidays, but I also have a lot of content to share with you, I just don't know when I will find the time haha! Given the fact that we have also 4 hours difference. My plan for the blog schedule for the next three weeks, is to post on Mondays and Fridays evenings, maybe once more on Wednesday if I have the time. Let's see if I will make it ;)

Today the  "Nail Stamping Sisterhood" Facebook Group proposed us to make a manicure with "Ugly Sweater" theme, which is a very popular theme in this season, especially in the northern hemisphere! LOL Dusing my childhood and youth I lived in Argentina where is a very torrid summer during Christmas and New Years' festivities. Those festivities never included "ugly sweaters" or any other sweater, so this is something I learned when I moved to Switzerland 15 years ago. What about you? Is it cold or warm during Holiday Season where you live?
I hope you will like my manicure :)


To create this manicure I started painting three of my nails with two coats of a wonderful matte red by Zoya, and two other nails with an off-white by Barry M. On top of my red nail I stamped using some sweater patterns form a stamping plate and white nail polish. On my white nails, I hand painted a pattern as a sweater using a very thin brush. I waited for this to dry and re painted several times, because the scope was building some "volume" on my patterns. Once it was dry, I covered my white design with a mattifying top coat and that was it!







These are the products and Items I used:
  • Barry M Nail Polish "Coconut"
  • Zoya nail polish "Posh" (matte red)
  • Beauty Big Bang Double ended nail art tool
  • Beauty Big Bang Stmaping plate XL-031
  • Beauty Big Bang Matte topcoat
  • MoYou London Stamping Polish "White Knight"

I hope you like my "Ugly Sweater" manicure. Don't forget to pay a visit to my challenge mates for more of these nails! You can find their creations on the Facebook Grooup!

Have a lovely weekend!

Love,
Nati
